Photo above pictures Atis holding and wearing the equipment he fabricated to execute his project “Earth at 970MPH”.

In his own words:
The presentation will focus on my current project Earth at 970MPH, a series of images that photographically tracks the sun’s movement in the sky and incidental earthscapes. With equipment I have built with mostly salvaged parts, I manually aim the camera directly at the sun in long exposures that often extends to over an hour. The results are photographs of a motionless sun with Earth’s landscapes rendered as blurs as it spins at 970 MPH anchored at ‘Oahu, my current location. The presentation will cover concept, material and process.
